“Exploring a new home“ / Serra do Bouro, Portugal – Day 2

Portugal, Serra do Bouro

Yesterday we finally arrived to Portugal after a long drive and I moved into my new home for 6 months. We arrived late so it was dark and we were to tired to look around. But we had a good night sleep and today we started to explore the new home. Still tired from the long drive we’ve decided to stay at home and organize things, rest and relax. I think that was a good decision and now I feel much better then the last couple of days.

Before my arrival I was organizing and finishing things back in Slovenia, but everything seems to go wrong: my car broke down and I was told that it couldn’t be repaired on time, my bank card stopped working, I had problems with the post office, insurance etc. Everything was really going wrong in the last days before my start and I wasn’t sure if I was able to go. But I stayed strong until the last minute and switched my car with my mum’s so I was able to leave on time. Now everything seems fine and all the drama was left behind like a new page in life.

There was a lot of useful information about Portugal waiting for us on the living room table, so I’m looking forward to explore everything.
